President Obama was roundly criticized earlier this year for exploiting children at a White House “sob story” event to promote his gun control agenda.
So this time, he’s leaving the children out of it, and bringing in their mothers instead.
From today’s White House briefing with Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest:
Tomorrow, the President will hold an event here at the White House where he will stand with mothers who want Congress to take action on common-sense measures to protect children from gun violence. The event will take place in the East Room. And in addition to the mothers on stage with the President, there will be law enforcement officials, victims of gun violence, and other stakeholders. So that will be tomorrow.
Good luck, ladies, defending your babies and your homes with a kitchen knife.
